Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Abstract

A new algorithm is presented that synthesises multiplier blocks with the goal of minimising FPGA hardware cost. Comparisons with existing algorithms are made via implementing synthesised blocks as the multiplication hardware of fully-pipelined, full-parallel transposed form FIR filters. Results establish that the classic optimisation goal of minimising adders does not minimise FPGA hardware. Instead, minimising multiplier block logic depth is shown to be the primary factor for low area FPGA implementation. Filters generated using the new algorithm are also shown to consume less FPGA area than equivalents implemented using the distributed arithmetic technique.
